Integrated Waste Management Local Task Force

The county of Santa Cruz and the cities of Capitola, Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley and Watsonville have begun a study of future garbage disposal options. Future disposal options under consideration include a new landfill in Santa Cruz County, transfer of refuse to landfills in other communities outside of Santa Cruz County, composting, and emerging waste conversion technologies.  This on-going process includes identifying and studying various sites across our county for construction of these facilities. These studies are being conducted by the Santa Cruz County Department of Public Works, under direction of the Integrated Waste Management Local Task Force.
